Coming soon....

You will start to hear stats like this very soon:

The Republican Congress came in January 1995 when federal spending was near an all time high of 21.75% GDP. When Republicans left, federal spending was 20.5% GDP... a reduction in government spending of $175 billion per year. What will (or have) democrats done....

The reason why you haven't heard this stat lately is because Federal spending was down at 19% in 1998. Republicans have been on a spending binge since then and everyone in the Republican party knows it. However, overall, the Republican Congress cut federal spending during their 12 years - facts don't lie. As time goes on we will forget about emotionalism tied to the spending binge and be left with the basic facts.
